As this office develops and nurtures relationships with Anglican, ecumenical, and interreligious partners in the Middle East, it also collaborates with The Episcopal Church's Mission Personnel Office to develop new missionary placements and opportunities in the Middle East, to support missionary discernment and training, and to ensure on-site pastoral support for missionaries in the field. The Partnership Office for the Middle East represents the Episcopal Church to relevant Middle East-related and issue-based UN and ecumenical working groups, and works with organizations such as the Anglican Alliance and Episcopal Relief & Development.
A webinar, sponsored by the Office of Government Relations, entitled, “Mission, Ministry, and Advocacy: The Episcopal Church & the Middle East” was presented on Thursday, January 25, 2108. Below are resources which were mentioned, including a link to the recording.
